I got ta say that this off road buggy is really something special, because it does remind me of that 80s 90s look and it just looks phenomenal, but let’s test the off road performance. 所以, 正如你所看到的, it drives in the rocky terrain, actually pretty decently like it can go over minor rocks. You know nothing too serious when it is something too serious, the motor can’t stall out, but in just normal rocky terrain it performs just fine. It really is an awesome car, but i would say that this off road buggy is really more of a racing buggy, because if it’s just on a flat, not rocky surface, it can get actually quite fast, surprisingly fast for a lego, technic set, but now let’s take A closer look at some of the features of the car itself. 首先, you get suspension on all four wheels of the car in the front. You get two main shock absorbers that are out in the open over here and the wheels here are suspended independently. So the left wheel is independently suspended of the right wheel and, 正如你所看到的, the suspension works here really really well. I really appreciate it, it’s really something to see, and i really like this car a lot here on the back as you can see. It’S sort of a solid axle suspension uh, so the wheels are not independently suspended, but the whole back axle is suspended by these two shock absorbers, which is really nice and the off road buggy is actually a rear.
Wheel type drive car so, 正如你所看到的, here’s a control plus l motor or the powered up l motor, which is driving sort of this main differential piece. Now i do really appreciate this differential. It was first introduced in the top gear rally car and i like that, it’s becoming more accessible to lego, technic fans, because this differential is much much better than the older style differential that we got simply because it can handle much more weight and much more pressure. 被放在实际车辆本身, i just want to say that if you’re enjoying this review so far, please subscribe. I noticed that only about four and a half percent of you who watch my videos are actually subscribed. So let’s get that number just a little higher. 无压力, 虽然没有压力, the off road buggy itself is really impeccably detailed, especially considering that it is only made up of 374 件. Despite that low piece count, you just get so many cool building techniques and pieces, 例如, this new sort of technical beam. This sort of beam is like the technic frame except it’s in the form of a beam you get the pin holes on all four sides. 它, a really nice beam. I do really like it, but man, the car just looks so beautiful. I do like every little aspect about this car. It definitely looks much better than the top gear rally. Car it’s certainly a much better deal than the top gear rally.
Car, 在我看来, it really does give that old sort of retro, vibe and that’s. 真. What sells me on the car also, i want to say that since i do have this set early, unfortunately i was not able to get the beta version of the control plus app, so i had to make my own within the powered up interface itself, as you Can see i sort of made basic two slider controls, the slider on the left controls the throttle and the slider here with the side to side, one controls the steering but uh. This is not actually the speed or the speedometer. This is the steering adjustment value which is controlled by these two buttons. 基本上, the return to center steering block is not exactly perfect within the powered up system, so you do have to adjust the steering a little tiny bit by pressing these buttons. You can either make it veer more to the left or to the right, because you know it compensates for the natural sort of direction of the car, because sometimes, if it’s at zero, the adjustment value it’ll go a little bit to the left or to the right. But here’s the powered up code that i’ve created in case you want to copy it. You know you feel free to do so. I just have the steering adjustment value done by all these variables over here, 它, a really nice and simple code, 所以这里是. The question: is it really worth 130 美元? 嗯, i say yes, 它, definitely worth it, because in this new rc buggy, we actually get a plethora of new features for lego technic, 例如, these new uh wheels over here, which do remind me of the retro style sort of uh from the 90s age of Lego technic, these wheels are really nostalgic for a lot of people and, and i think that these wheels definitely add sort of an extra level of awesomeness to the whole car, but let’s go over the pros and cons really quick well for the pros, as i already Mentioned the wheels they’re really nice nostalgic and they’re brand new for lego technic.
We also do actually get full suspension for this car, which is great for off road performance. I do really appreciate it. This car really has everything you need for lego, technic and also another great positive of this car is that it is actually super duper fast like for you know, an rc car for lego, 技术, that’s only 130 美元. This is the fastest experience you will ever get from lego technic, like uh those old rc track, racers that we have seen in the past from lego, technic with power functions they weren’t super fast and because they used ir technology instead of bluetooth. Obviously the range was very limited outside, so they were only good for really indoor play and you know short range, but this car really does resemble sort of a realistic car except you get to build it out of lego technic, which is really really incredible. 另一个伟大的积极因素是控制加系统. You get two large motors and this main technic hub, the main technic hub costs, 90 dollars and the two motors cost forty dollars each so that’s equivalent to a hundred and seventy dollars in electronics alone. 然而你得到这一切: the buggy the wheels some gears, even over here for just a hundred thirty dollars. So i definitely think that it is worth it but let’s suppose what are some of the cons for the car? 首先, it’s a little pricey at 130 美元, but you know, i think that in about like six months or so, this is definitely gon na, be the peak time for you to buy it because on bricklink it’s definitely going to get much cheaper and if You didn’t know: bricklink is owned by lego, so you can definitely trust bricklink.
I definitely highly recommend you, you know waiting and getting this car from bricklink it’s. Definitely going to save you a ton of money and another like sort of kind of negative, although not really uh you’ll, see what i mean is, 例如, we get this fake antenna over here now. This fake antenna really implies that it is a radio controlled vehicle. I really want to see modern lego, technic radio, controlled vehicles as opposed to bluetooth, because with radio control you get ideal range. You get like these awesome controllers, which are fully customizable like the dx60, 例如. You can do so much with radio control. Technology is just super awesome. I do really wish that the next sort of electronics that we do get isn’t bluetooth but it’s, a radio controlled, lego technic. Just imagine that the range would be so much better. You could also incorporate faster and better motors. You could uh just do so much, 您可以. 你知道的, incorporate third party batteries more easily it’s just gon na be so awesome. I do really appreciate it. 虽然你知道我不会真的说，这是一个必然的汽车，这是, just something that i thought i i should share with the car. But let me know what you think of the lego, technic off road buggy and i actually did purchase all of the lego. Technic 2021 winter sets, except for the skid steer loader, so make sure to subscribe, to get those reviews – and i am planning on motorizing the lego, technic ferrari, so make sure to subscribe and get those videos as soon as they come out.
This is yaron brickman here and i’ll.
